Paving Agreement for Roads in Listuguj

Message from the Office of Chief and Council:

On April 12, 2018, Councillor Sky Metallic and the Capital & Infrastructure team met with the Department of Indigenous Service Canada (DISC). An agreement was reached between LMG and the Department of Indigenous Service Canada regarding paving the streets in Listuguj, that would allow for the paving to begin as early as this year. There is still work to be done before getting started, however the Capital and Infrastructure department progressing towards making this happen. Plans have been developed for the following streets, with others possibly being added in the near future.

• Nation Lane
• Church Crescent
• Qasgusi
• Isaac Lane
• Dedam Road
• Gitpu Crescent (Pending Caplin Drainage)
• Glitaw
• Pguman
• Milita’j
• Caplin Road (Riverside to Nation Lane)
• Martin Lane
• Old Mill Road

This is a major commitment on the part of the Capital and Infrastructure working in coordination with the Lands department to insure the proper access and permissions are in order. Work to address the rest of Caplin Road continues, involving collaboration with the province, MTQ, and the Department of Indigenous Service Canada.
In addition to the commitments made to paving roads, we have explored several options for a long-term solution to the annual flooding and drainage issues on Caplin Road, and remain hopeful that we can begin working towards that goal in the immediate future.
